Yesterday was a big day for news. Jana got word from Music Together on their granting her a limited license and I received a call from the Academic Doctoral Office that I had received a clear pass on my comprehensive examinations.
Wow! That’s great news and a big milestone.
This means I’ve complete the next step in the program (step two on the timeline) and am preparing for my proposal hearing. I’ve already turned in two drafts of the proposal to my first reader and am waiting his feedback and final comments. Then all I have to do is prepare the final copy to turn in to the Academic Doctoral Office by April 29th. I am scheduled to defend my proposal on May 14. Then, if I am given the go ahead, I can finally begin working on my dissertation. The goal is to defend my dissertation in the spring or summer of 2010.
Wow–only a little more than a year and we could be headed back to Slovakia.
